We stayed a night while traveling through San Antonio. Our room was overlooking The Alamo. The Riverwalk is a few blocks away. We were traveling with a mobility scooter and the scooter fit perfectly through the hotel room door. The bath tub is deep so if you have trouble with balance, perhaps an accessible room would be better for you. Our room was not accessible but we knew that when booking. Parking- when you arrive, park in front of the Houston street Hotel entrance- call the front desk so that the valet will come for your car. It will save you a lot of riding around and wondering where to park.They park your car in a secured lot about three blocks away. In and out access is available. Just let the front desk know so they can call valet for you. The staff is very friendly, helpful and they even message you to see how you are doing. Excellent customer service. The Riverwalk is within walking distance but if you have a mobility scooter you will have to access it by elevator- Crockett -it will let you out right by Hard Rock Cafe. You'll need the Crockett elevator if you want to do the Riverwalk boat tour. Or, Presa Street has an elevator for the other side of the River. Unfortunately, The Alamo was closed due to Covid-19 but you can still take photos from a far. We would definitely stay here again for the excellent service and location.

My husband I stayed at the Emily Morgan hotel from Monday - Wednesday. We had booked the Duke Suite which is on the top floor. We arrived at about 3:30pm on Monday. Miss Tonni (I think that’s her name) checked us in. She was so lovely and so nice! She definitely made us feel welcome. My husband was disappointed that we didn’t get any of the delicious DoubleTree cookies though but no matter. The elevator at the Emily Morgan was really fast. I’ve never been to a hotel with a fast elevator like that. Our room was very spacious and the views were amazing! We had a view overlooking the Alamo and downtown. I loved the high ceiling in the bedroom too. The jacuzzi bath was very deep and comfortable. I wish I had a bath like that for my house! The bed was very comfortable, and I liked how there was an oscillating fan in the bedroom to help cool things down. Noise wasn’t an issue either as it was fairly quiet. Premium WiFi wasn’t available for purchase but the standard WiFi was good and reliable. Although the room had cups, I wish it did have plates and cutlery as well. That is my only complaint. Other than that, the suite was perfect! When we were about to leave, I called the front desk so they could get our car from valet. It didn’t take that long to get our vehicle. Miss Tonni checked us out, and again, she was just as sweet and friendly as before. The Emily Morgan will definitely be mine and my husband’s go to hotel when we are in San Antonio. We will always book the Duke suite because everything about it was great! I can’t recommend this hotel enough!

I was told that I could not cancel a reservation and would be charged full price! This is NOT what I was told when I made the reservation. Then I was stuck on hold for over 45 min waiting to talk to someone! TERRIBLE customer service - disgraceful! I will go back to the Crockett or the Menger from now on!!!!

Responded Apr 30, 2020
Dear Guest: I am sorry to hear about your experience at our hotel. It is not like us to provide the guest with wrong information at the hotel when taking a reservation. Our cancellation policy can be found in all of our confirmation emails and we have relaxed cancellation policies temporarily when booking direct. If you can please reach out to me so I can understand what went wrong and I will assist you in every way possible. We would hate to lose your business especially a frequent guest and if you did by chance book through a third party then I may be able to assist you as well. I am very sorry for the confusion and I am hopeful I can provide an explanation for you. Please reach out to me at Kole.Siefken@Hilton.com. Sincerely, Kole Siefken General Manager

We arrived for a 12-day stay at the Emily Morgan on the Ides of March, not really knowing what to expect, with the COVID-19 impact due in San Antonio in next few days. We got to know and engage with staff and management very well, as they had to close the restaurant and bar, furlough employees, and keep operations going while rooms emptied and incoming guests cancelled. We thank Jena, Ivan, and Andrew especially for providing us with the experience of staying in a Grand Hotel—crisis notwithstanding. We are “HHonors Diamond for Life“ and we are extremely grateful for the Five-Star performance of the Emily Morgan crew. Alert: the Emily Morgan has a unique stainless steel courtyard pool. Don’t forget to pack your bathing suit!

The Emily Morgan Hotel is a great place to stay in San Antonio. Fantastaic location. It is right across the street from the Alamo, easy to get to and navigate from, and very close to the River Walk. This hotel probably has one of the best staff I have ever encounterd in travelling. All the sttaff we met were were extremely helpful, friendly and professional. Caleb the night manager and Johnny the consierge were great. My rating of 4-stars is because the rooms are very small.
